Looking Within: A Case Study on OVC & Community Mobilization in Tanzania

By John Nicholson | 15 Feb, 2011

In 2003, the end of some foreign assistance and food aid programs in districts of Dar es Salaam endangered education prospects for many young people, especially orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). In response, the Youth Alive Tanzania’s Youth and Parents Crisis Counseling Center (YOPAC) program demonstrated how assistance can be mobilized from within communities to protect young people's access to education. Learn more about how YOPAC is using "community-enforced agreements" to help OVC stay in school.
